1936 Real Photographs of London Set Overview

1936 Real Photographs of London Wimbledon Tennis.jpgThis set featured some of the more notable events and sights in London, England. It was distributed with several tobacco brands, including Trawler, Critic, and King Lud.

The cards are black and white and similar to several other issues around that same time period. It is eerily similar to the 1935 Sights of London set, which was produced for other cigarette brands. Some of the subjects and photos were used in both sets.

Fronts of the cards also included a small caption. Backs include a description of the location or event pictured.

Most are non-sports cards but a few sports issues are found. One card (No. 46) features the iconic Wembley soccer stadium and another features Wimbledon (No. 26), king of all tennis championships events. Both of those cards had the same pictures from the Sights of London set, only cropped slightly differently. The card numbers, however, were different.

The only sports cards in the set are the cards for Wembley and Wimbledon.
